The Lore of the Evermen (The Evermen Saga Book 4)
The Lore of the Evermen (The Evermen Saga Book 4)
Price: £3.98

5.0 out of 5 stars On the Edge of Oblivion, 21 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The art of telling a cracking tale is in the ease with which the teller weaves a world that is at once strange, exotic, full of original ideas and yet believable. The main characters grow throughout the series of books, and their lives become important to us. The ending is exactly the way a good finale should be, all the loose ends tied up and a nice little twist right on the last page. A page turner from book one all the way to book four.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coot Club, 23 Feb. 2004
If you have ever yearned to have your own small sailing boat and an adventure to go with it, then this is the book for you.
Set on the Norfolk Broads during a long, hot summer in the early 1930's, the story will draw you into the world of the Norfolk Rivers and it's boats, of outlaws and heroism, of freindship and loyalty, where danger is lurking just around the corner.
Arthur Ransome writes in a very direct style, and is totally accurate in his descriptions of the handling of boats, which way the tides flow, and how to avoid being caught by the awful "Hullabaloos"!
As you read late into the night, unable to resist the temptation to read just one more chapter, you will become part of the crew, you will love the little sailing boats as much as the children in the story themselves do, and you will feel that you too could row a boat and hoist the sails. The characters are so real that by the end of the book, you will feel that you have known them all your life.
I first read Coot Club when I was about twelve, and indeed the magic of this and the other eleven "Swallows and Amazons" series has never left me. If ever there were books to inspire children to the outdoor life and to voyages of discovery, these are the ones. I should know, since it was these books that gave me my love of boats and the great outdoors that is with me to this day.
